    Disappointed at seating. We indicated on reservations the exact table #, but I think staff either did not take note of this, or simply ignored it. Worked in a past visit,not sure why ignored this time. Also, indicated under reservations “special occasion”, was to celebrate birthday, but no acknowledgment whatsoever mentioned by staff. I feel they don’t pay attention to these details on open table requests. Not exceptable in a high end restaurant of this caliber. Otherwise, food quality, atmosphere, etc. was great. If and when we return, I guess I will need to call to verify everything.

    The meal was delicious and service was excellent. I gave 4 stars for value because I just don’t understand why restaurant meals need to be so expensive. I gave a lower rating for ambience because the restaurant is very loud— like many new restaurants, the ceiling is high and unfinished. Combined chatter from patrons bounces off the ceiling and makes it difficult to carry on a nice conversation without shouting.

    This was our second time here. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is outstanding, it’s the food that falls a little short. My husbands 8 oz beef tenderloin was 6 oz at best and overcooked. My daughter got the same and hers was fine. The best thing I had was the chocolate mousse, which was delicious. Everything is pretty expensive, our dinner for 3 was just shy of 500.00 including tip.

    Tardif's American BrasserieResponded 3 days ago
    Hola muy buenos dias, mi nombre es Jean Tardif y estoy muy apenado por el contratiempo que sufrio su mesa. sin justificacion alguna puedo asegurarle que no es algo que nos caracteriza pero ese dia cerraron la carretera y por tal motivo todas nuestras reservaciones sufrieron un retraso. Por favor acepte mi mas sinceras disculpas. espero poder contar con su visita nuevamente y poder darle el servicio que merece incluyendo los ya capacitados meseros para servir sus vinos. reciba un cordial saludo. Jean Tardif.

    Super fun and exciting evening! Food was terrific; Victoria, our server, was outstanding. The mussels with blue cheese were a guilty pleasure. Quibbles: booth seats are too low; I felt like I needed to sit on a pillow. Next time (and there will be a next time), we will ask for a table. The only food disappointment was the pork belly Brussels sprouts. You would need a microscope to see the pork belly. They kindly took it off the bill. The wine list is small but expensive. We did find a wine we liked in our price range, after Victoria kindly brought us two tasting glasses to choose from. We were given a complimentary HUGE slice of chocolate cake as it was my husband’s birthday. Can’t wait to go back and try some of the other menu items!

    Great place to unwind after a long work day … wonderful professional service and the choices on the menu are great .We love to split the Chateaubriand , the pave potatoes are delicious ,as are the Brussel sprouts . My wish is that there would be more French wines offered , esp from the Rhône Valley . The desserts are over the top , we enjoyed the pear tart , exceptional !!! The wait staff is very well trained and professional , and chef changes the menu so you do not always have the same things if you are a frequent customer ,which is nice .Very nice dining experience ! 👏👏👏 to the manager who takes care of everyone !!!

    A must try! I love food and a great experience. I ask myself three questions. Can you hook me, maintain, and can you finish? Yes Tardif’s did! Appetizers were beef tartar, and smoked beet carpaccio. Main course was short ribs, and braised to perfection. Husband had the beef Wellington, 4/5. Dessert was bread pudding and the pear tart with their in-house made vanilla bean ice cream. Plate licking good! We were a table divided as to which dessert was our favorite. Service was great. Thank you for a fantastic evening. We’ll be back!

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and every thing at Tardif’s was excellent! My husband ordered the chateaubriand and it was seriously amazing and one of the best steaks I have ever had in my life. The staff were all very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I would definitely recommend Tardif’s. We shall be returning in the future.

    We were so excited to go there for our anniversary because I had heard great things about it and it did not disappoint. The ambiance, staff, service and food were excellent. We had the Branzino and pork chop and both were delicious and to top it off they threw in a chocolate cake for free for our anniversary. Would definitely go back!

    Over all we had a great experince. lt was our first time and the food was great. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is because of the hostess at the entry. We walked in and were not greeted. We walked up and just got a smile but no greeting. Explained we had reservations and she asked for a name and handed the menus to another hostess who took us to our table.

    we’ve been to the restaurant several times and rarely ever have a disappointing meal. However, last night we ordered the pork belly as an appetizer and sadly it was overcooked dry and burnt. Moreover, the main entrée, which was the short ribs, had a similar dryness, burnt flavor. We observed that chef spending more time socializing at table instead of checking the quality of food leaving the kitchen. The star that night was the ratatouille, which was delicious we will be ordering it again thank you

    Kudos to the chef/owner and servers. Amazing food masterfully prepared and attentive friendly professional server Savannah top notch. We enjoyed the bread, smoked beet carpaccio, blt salad, Branzino, snapper and the pear tart with vanilla gelato. Wonderful French cuisine in our own backyard. Pricey but worth it. Dessert was possibly the best thing we’ve ever eaten anywhere.

    The hostess was unprofessional. Overall dining was great until it got towards the end of the night. Server seemed to purposely “forget” things we ordered more than once. Drinks went from being great to mediocre, garnishing from drinks that made them signature were missing. Desserts seemed rushed like they were left out as if they were anticipating someone buying it. For what my group spent we expected no such mistakes.
